4th grade students enjoyed a sunshiny day in Springfield visiting Abraham Lincoln's Tomb, the Lincoln Museum and Abraham Lincoln's home. Following are some interesting facts about our 16th President of the United States. Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin to an extremely poor family, he was self-educated and taught himself law. He became President when he was 52 years of age and served for 4 years until 1865. Some major events that happened during his presidency included President Lincoln leading the Union into Civil War to protect the nation and put an end to slavery, the Emancipation Proclamation was issued in January, 1863 and slavery ended with the passage of the 13th amendment. Abraham married Mary Todd Lincoln on November 4, 1842 and together they had four sons. The Gettysburg Address is one of the best-known speeches in American history, it was delivered by Lincoln during the Civil War at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; the first sentence of the speech began with "Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal"
